Tahoe and Yukon are ugly though lol

And all this oil consumption crap hasn't crept up on the Toyota's that i've seen. Maybe i need to stick with that trend lol

I hate how much even a used car is nowadays though. I keep passing a 78 Wagoneer at a used car lot, maybe i just need to get that and bolt a third seat in the back lol

You want a Toyota and you're calling the Tahoe/Yukon ugly?

There's a good reason that GM owns about 75% of the large SUV market. They are damn good vehicles.

Toyota has had their fair share of oil slude/consumption issues. There's actually a class action lawsuit in regards to it.

http://www.consumerreports.org/cro/2...udge/index.htm

Many more reports of similar issues continue to occur on newer Toyota vehicles, including trucks and SUVs.

I'm partial to Durangos, but you get gas mileage that of Toyota sequoia or Toyota Land Cruiser. If you can live with a bit worse mileage than 4runner, I would get a sequoia or land cruiser.

Since I work at a Dodge dealer I am a little biased but a Durango with a hemi could work. Has the third row and enough towing capacity, mpg could be better.

Same here, I have 2011 Durango used that would do the job in style but perhaps not with economy. Then again, a seven rider SUV that tows well just won't be a gas saver, lol

Tahoe/Yukon
Pathfinder (you can find these with a v8)
4runner or sequoia would work

But they all are going to bring the suck at the gas pump, I'd go Tahoe or awd express van
